Introduction: Paper Airplane: the Nakamura Lock

Picture of Paper Airplane: the Nakamura Lock

This is one of the best paper airplanes that I've ever made. It is moderately simple to fold and a very good flier. It is a gentle glider with a "flat" front so if it ever crashes the front won't crinkle up like it would on a airplane with a pointy tip. TIP: If you ever have a Nerf war, you can put a Nerf velcro dart in The Nakamura Lock and throw it at someone. This is very fun.

You like? Well let's get foldin'.

Step 1: What You'll Need

This step shows you what you need. A sheet of paper, a pen or pencil, and a ruler. USE A RULER! I DON'T HAVE ONE.

Step 2: Body

Time to fold up the body of the airplane. This is the hardest step. READ ALL NOTES!!!!!

Step 3: Final Folds

There's a secret to making that particular plane fly better.  I'll let you look around for it.

I think I know it. You fold up the back of the wings so they're almost straight up.

Goku747 (author)FlutterTree2015-10-16

incorrect, you bend the wings upward

WillB3 (author)2014-12-13

Interesting, I've been making a very similar plane design I call the PhoeniX, or the Eagle X, which is like this but uses a much more simple and crisp wing design, which is also related to the Delta, a twist on the classic Dart.
